"You know why? Because he doesn't have respect for the fighters - that's what gets me p***ed off."

The former unified world champion continued to attack Whyte on social media.

He tweeted: "Stop playing the 'victim' card bro...You talk all this shit, disrespect your opponents at weigh ins, post stupid memes and now we gotta feel sorry for you cause you got KO'd?? #gtfoh."

In a response that pulled no punches, Whyte said: "Andy Ruiz is glad that he don't have to fight me.

"He's glad the only battle he's got now is just with diabetes.

"I'm not on him anymore, he's glad. Diabetes he can overcome, but he can't overcome me."
